Vibrant language and physical theatre chart the devastating effect that one act of evil can have on an otherwise honourable and loyal man – we see how the ripples of that act spread to destroy both Macbeth himself and all those for whom he cared. As their actions are challenged by a third character who also brings the wider world of the play to life, Macbeth and his wife are seen to become ever more prey to the devastating horrors they have unleashed as they move inevitably towards their doom.

“Very animated and lively with lots of enthusiasm and good audience participation. It was amazing!”

– Year 11 student, John Hampden Grammar School

“The modern twist appealed to the teenage audience and the great use of the text mixed with modern language made it accessible to all.  It was a fantastic production and excellent adaptation of the play.”

– Head of English, Winton Community Academy

“The production was engaging and interactive and the interpretation provided by the Inquisitors was fantastic. The music etc supported the drive of the performance and meant that all the boys were engaged fully which was an amazing achievement. The pupils will remember lines from the play for the exam and they will also be able to consider effect more carefully now.  Finally, the context element was excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed the performance but also the performers’ willingness to work with the boys.”

– Vice Principal, Chichester High School
